Coliesa McMillian has had a rough childhood and the instances have left her emotionally scarred. After having an alcoholic father, an abusive husband and later, losing the love of her life in a car accident, Coliesa has seen a lot of pain. With all these memories piled up, the only thing that helped Coliesa cope was food. 

Coliesa admitted that she was like a "ticking time bomb" as she thought that her heart could give up any time. She feared that there would come a day when her daughters entered the room and found her not breathing. Coliesa's worry arises from knowing that she has already had one heart attack that nearly killed her.

Due to her weight, she was unable to get the surgery which increased the chances of her getting another heart attack. To top this, Coliesa's eating habits are worse than any seen so far as she eats to the extent where her body can't take it anymore and she has to throw up. If these instances weren't enough, fans are convinced that Coliesa might be addicted to pills.

They were quick to notice that Coliesa hinted that she needed her "walking pills" to find the strength to drag herself to the car as they prepared to go to Houston to meet Dr Younan Nowzaradan. Another thing that triggered the fan speculation was Coliesa's reaction when she found out that she did not have her painkillers in the bag. 

Halfway to their trip, Coliesa stated that she had some old pills lying around in her bag and she wanted to take them because she could not control the pain. When Coliesa could not find them in her bag, she lost her temper. It reached to an extent that her sister had to stop the car and look for them herself.

Despite this, none of them were able to find it. This prompted Coliesa to call her daughter and ask where she had kept the medication. When she found out they were at home, Coliesa lost her temper once again and screamed at her daughter. She later ordered her to take her car and bring the medicines to her. 

Fans were surprised to see someone react in this way for pills. This had them convinced that she might be addicted to them. "The way she is acting does she need to medicine or is she addicted to medicine and having a withdrawal (sic)," one user wrote.

Another added, "I know an addict when I see one and them pills will have you acting like an ass for nothing. them little pills got a HUGE grip," while another echoed similar thoughts and wrote, "Anybody that reacts that way to missing pain pills is an addict." 

While there is no proof about her addiction, one thing that is certain is that Coliesa is addicted to eating and she needs to work on losing her weight.
